EVELYN GIBB (soprano)
THE OLDER Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiasts among our listeners will remember that during the long run of The Gondoliers, the opera which was given at Windsor by Royal Command, an unhappy quarrel separated Gilbert and Sullivan, and broke their partnership for some years. It was during the interim that Sullivan composed Haddon Hall to Sydney Grundy's libretto. When the two old friends settled their differences, it is not too much to say that the peace was hailed with something like national rejoicing. Utopia Limited was the first result of their renewed collaboration, the thirteenth in order of date, of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. It was a real success on its production and ran for about ten months.
WHEN SULLIVAN DIED in 1901 he left his last opera, The Emerald Isle, unfinished. Edward German was offered the commission to finish it, and so skilfully did he do his work that it is not easy for those who do not know, to distinguish which of the music is Sullivan's and which is German's. Naturally, the next opera to be put on at the Savoy was one all by German, Merrie England, and this work ranks in charm and merit equally with the rest of the Savoy repertory. The book was by Basil Hood and deals with the days of Queen Elizabeth. Following a long and successful run at the Savoy Theatre, it quickly reached the amateur stage, and there it stays and will stay as long as amateurs continue to love good music.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
